1999 Z28 Engine Swap Questions

Hey guys! I'm new to this forum well actually new to Camaros also. I just got a 1999 Z28 roller... it had a Ls1 with a t56 in it before. I got it for 500!!! Looks great. Well honestly I don't want to put any fuel injection stuff back in it. I have a sbc 350 carbed laying around, and was thinking of buying a th350 or a th400 to go with it. I want to do this cheap as possible. Not looking for insane horsepower. Around 350 will be plenty of enough for me now... This will be a weekend car to screw around with. I dont need... AC, heat, speakers and that stuff, wipers (because I won't be driving it in the rain), power seats (i got some recaros). Basically i want to make this car really simplified. I will be making a new wiring harness for it. Going to keep stock suspension for now. I have researched alot and mostly all of the guys are doing v6 to v8 swaps. My car was a v8 before so I think things would be diffrent. Some of my questions are...

1) Will a Gen I 350 sbc drop in with the stock motor mounts?

2) Will a th350 or th400 drop in without buying any new mounts or something?

3) How long does the tail housing have to be, to be used with the stock drivesshaft?


Thanks in advance!!!

Why not keep it fuel injected? Will be much nicer to drive. Just find a cheap 5.3 from a truck, get an LS1 intake and drop it in.

Trade your 99 body to someone with a pre 93 body and it will be a lot easier job.
